Alright, alright, we get it, it's hot outside. Chill out. Literally!
In our recipe for No-Bake Berry Pie, fresh berries are gelled with lemon juice and just a tad honey. Filled into a sweet and crunchy graham cracker crust, the pie says, "Hello summer. You're hot, but I'm cool."
No-Bake Berry Pie
¼ cup arrowroot
¼ cup water
6 cup mixed fresh berries
¼ cup agave or honey
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 prepared graham crust
1) Combine arrowroot and water in a small bowl; whisk until smooth. Set aside.
2) Combine 4 cups berries, honey, lemon juice, and vanilla in a medium pot; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Add arrowroot mixture; stir to mix. Cook until mixture is thickened, stirring, about 2 to 4 minutes.
3) Remove pot from heat; stir in remaining berries. Pour mixture into prepared crust. Cover and chill until firm, about 6 to 8 hours. Serve cold.
